The renowned IHBC London Branch Annual Conference this year (2016) explores 'character building' in place management, reaching across place-related practices to look at how we might set heritage more productively within planning and placemaking.
IHBC Director Sean O'Reilly said: 'The IHBC is once again delighted to be able to offer to members and colleagues a remarkable opportunity to explore the outer boundaries of conservation in 'character building', both good and bad, as our London Branch promises a special day of learning, challenge and cross-disciplinary networking. This event is not to be missed by anyone serious about looking beyond their comfort zones in conservation: and as ever that should mean anyone in, or interested in, the IHBC'
'And of course we are also delighted to welcome as sponsors a private practice with particular relevance to the title, Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners, and as Chair, IHBC President David McDonald.'
IHBC London Branch wrote:
Our historic environment provides not only a rich architectural and cultural resource, but also a wealth of models of sustainable and healthy living. However, within the planning system, heritage appears to be increasingly confined to an assessment of significance rather than a catalyst for positive change. In this, the eleventh of our London conferences, we intend to redress the balance. We will look at ways in which heritage, urban design and planning professionals can work together to make successful places.
This conference will be of relevance to conservation officers and other heritage professionals, town planners, urban designers, engineers, surveyors, architects, and archaeologists and as usual, we intend the presentations to be of nationwide interest, not solely London-focused.
